Farm and Forest

15 sites · RVs, Tents22 acres · Lexington, KY
This land has previously been a tobacco farm, a hay farm, and is now home to a few beef cattle. We acquired the property in 2017, and have been making it our own and enjoying it ever since. We have blazed trails through the woods for hiking, created campsites with fire rings, farmed hay, and grown various vegetables for self-consumption. We love the proximity of the farm to town, yet the seclusion we feel when we are out there.

The LAAAAND (just you & 50 acres)

2 sites · RVs, Tents50 acres · Frenchburg, KY
When you want to get away to nature, what do you envision? We're a family that loves to camp; and while we love a stop at a KOA or community campground, we sometimes crave quiet time in nature without the noise and distraction of other campers. That's what makes The LAAAAND so special. The property is comprised of 50 pristine acres, with a mix of fields and woods, that bump up against another 250 acres owned by our family friends. The southern perimeter of the property is all cliff line, so you feel truly remote. The possibilities of sound pollution are limited to a far-off dog barking, horses being ridden down a nearby trail, or the possible hum of a distant lumber yard. Other than that, you'll mostly hear the wind rustling trees, deer and critters making their way through the woods, and possibly a waterfall at certain times of the year. Oh, and you will absolutely hear whipoorwhills, most likely at a time you'd rather not (we've decided they're charming). Over the nearly 2 decades we've owned this property we have spent countless weekends enjoying the simplest of pleasures; watching butterflies dance in the tree canopy, having dance parties at sunset on the deck, forging new trails and hiking into the unkown, sitting in the truck bed late at night gazing at a star-covered sky counting shooting stars. If you are looking for a space and place to reset and reconnect, The LAAAAND is waiting for you.

The best camping near Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park guide

Overview

About

“United we stand, divided we fall.” Named after the battle of the American Revolution, Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park is a land of history and cedar glades, where thankfully you won’t find any more warfare. Tramp around like ancient bison on the Buffalo Trace trail. Hike the River Trail to see where Daniel Boone and his men were captured while on a saltmaking expedition. Oogle the rare and endangered wildflower, Short’s Goldenrod, protected in the 15-acre Nature Preserve. Definitely don’t miss the Pioneer Museum where you can see a mastodon tooth, prehistoric fossils and relics from the Civil War! With so much to see and do here, you’ll want to stay a few days, so bring the dog and camp out on the grass under huge, shady trees. If you plan on canoeing down the Licking River, do what is right and wear a raccoon hat. You’ll be a part of history of the great state of Kentucky, and maybe some funny pictures, too.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak.
